On Come on


On Come on

I guess we get stories like this here in the US, there have to be boneheaded cops everywhere, but this is rather "over the top."

In Gosport, Hampshire, UK, someone has been going around putting parking tickets on cars and telling people to send the money to a PO Box in another city.  When the BBC checked, sure enough, the company on the ticket was listed in that other city. So what are the local bobbies going to do?  Put on extra patrols to catch the rotters in the act.

No one thought about strolling down to the company named on the ticket and having a "quiet word" about bogus tickets rather than promote the fact that they were laying on extra patrols to catch them in the act.

By now, the offices of Responsive Solutions, LTD, in Essex, are empty, the PO box closed and there will be no forwarding address.

The Brits do a great job catching terrorists, but seem to lose it when it comes to parking issues.
